Last Leaves Magazine: Now Seeking Poetry Submissions

Last Leaves is a new online poetry magazine that aims to create community. It’s an online space to share great poetry, to listen and to be heard. They publish all forms and styles of poetry, and they feature unpublished authors and established poets alike. They simply want readers to think and feel deeply in response to the poems they encounter in Last Leaves. You can download Last Leaves for free to get a sense of what they publish.

So far, Last Leaves has published two large digital editions, each containing work from around 150 contributors. Right now through August 31st they’re seeking submissions for their third edition, themed “Masks”: “Masks appear everywhere. Worn to protect, hide, and assimilate, how do you present yourself? How do you think you are received?”

Poets may submit three to five poems responding to this theme. Last Leaves also accepts artwork, and they welcome poets to pair original artwork with the poems they submit. Submitting authors can expect a response within two months.

Last Leaves accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.

Last Leaves only accepts submissions that adhere to the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.
